Did You Know: How to See Foreclosure Sales on Google Maps

Via Consumerist I learned today that you can see foreclosure sales in your home town and all over the U.S. through Google Maps. Who knew? Here's how it works:

1. Enter a town or city name into Google Maps.
2. Go to the "More" drop-down box at the top of the map and select the "Real Estate" box.
3. All homes for sale will appear, but then go to the options menu on the left and select "Foreclosure" (and deselect "For Sale").

All homes for sale as foreclosures should now appear as red dots. Mouse-over the dot to get address information, and click on any dot to get photos and much more. Cool! 

Consumerist says Google Maps "only shows foreclosures currently on the market and won't show any foreclosures that have already been sold by banks." Here's how things are looking in my town:
